"Critical vulnerability in Server Service has only been patched by
Microsoft (MS08-067), as a new worm called Gimmiv.A has been found
exploiting it in-the-wild."
Just to split hairs, Gimmiv is a trojan, not a worm. It's just a
keylogger. It in and of itself does not spread. I have no idea why the
Threatexpert blogger called it a worm, everyone else calls it a trojan.
While I do not claim to be an expert, the samples I have seen with my
own eyes are trojans and don't have the ability to spread.
That said, it won't take much for someone to write self-replicating code
exploiting this vulnerability.
